Jeremy Swanson/Aspen Skiing Co.A rider hits the local slopes last January. The Aspen Skiing Co. announced pass prices for the coming season on Thursday.

ASPEN – It will cost Aspen Skiing Co. customers from $25 to $50 more to hit the slopes in the coming winter if they purchase season passes by the “super-early” deadline of Sept. 14, according to Skico’s website.

Skico raised the price of a premier pass from $1,549 last season to $1,599 for the coming season. That $50 increase was the largest for any ski pass.

Customers who can purchase a ski pass as an employee of a business that belongs to a local chamber of commerce get the customary discount. Chamber-related premier passes increased from $1,139 last season to $1,179 this season, according to Skico’s website.

The double-flex pass, good for two days of skiing per week, is going up $40 over last season. The double flex was $1,249 last season and is going up to $1,289 for the coming season.

For chamber members, the double-flex pass price increased from $989 to $1,029, the website showed.

Flex-pass prices, good for one day per week on the slopes, increased by $30 for the standard pass and $25 for the chamber pass.

The standard price of a flex pass went from $849 last season to $879 this season.

The flex pass for chamber members increased from $729 last season to $754 this season. Extra days can be purchased for $54 per day.

The premier pass line-up was expanded. There are now premier passes for children ages 7-12 ($559); youth ages 13-17 ($869); college students ages 18-24 ($869); seniors ages 65-69 (1,179); and silver citizens ages 70 and up ($419). Those prices are valid if the passes are purchased by the super-early deadline of Sept. 14.

All pass prices increase on Sept. 15 and again on Nov. 10.
